Great pix. In my area they have a yearly Thresherman's fair. I've never been, but I think I'll make a point of attending after seeing your photo series.

I like the sequence but the one with the red tires strands out.

I honestly didn't know there was such an active culture around these. Interesting to see.

I love the reds in your photos. There’s also a fair amount of detail on the mechanical stuff that is really interesting.
